Thoughtful Tuesday

Hello friends…

So it’s a thoughtful Tuesday and I’m sharing a quote with you today.

Quote

“You become what you listen to and what you think”.

The things we see and hear can affect us positively or negatively.

What you listen and keeping watching consequently becomes your thoughts, speech, intentions and actions.

The more you allow people tell you that you are nothing, it gets into your head and it constantly becomes a part of you. As you keep thinking about those words, finally you bring them out.

Don’t let anyone walk into your mind with their dirty feet! They will destroy you. They will limit you and make you less of who you really are.

Rather think about honorable things, focus on good and shun evil!

May I suggest a great book to you?The word of God (the bible).
Meditate on that and see how your life gets transformed.

Blessings…

Today’s fragrance by Papberry: Unlocking answered prayers.

Today’s fragrance by Papberry

Topic: keys to unlock answered prayers

Scripture: Jeremiah 29:13 

By the grace of God we are starting a series on the basic keys to unlock answered prayers. Stay with me on this journey as the Holy Spirit enlightens you through me to getting answers to your long awaited prayers.

We will take it one at a time to get a full understanding of the keys. The post God-fidence is the foundation to this post read here if you haven’t so that you can follow this post well.

Key one

1. To unlock answered prayers one must approach God in holiness.

Jeremiah 29:13 says…”You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart”.

Approaching God in holiness means praying from a pure heart. It is only when your heart is aligned with God’s that you get to know His ways. 

God cannot be mentioned without talking about holiness because without it absolutely no one will see Him( Hebrews 12:14)

It is only when your heart is pure (right with God) that you would be able to seek and find Him and see His salvation (get Him involved in everything you do).
God commands us to be holy even as He is holy, this means that , we should set ourselves apart unto Him (focus on Him).
The book of james 4:3 reminds us that asking in doubt brings no positive result. So at this point, focusing on God is very necessary because when you do this, your mind, heart, conscience, intentions and everything moves in one direction.

You can’t ask God to do something for you and have different thoughts at the same time , you will never get anywhere with such prayers.

That is why approaching God in holiness is very important because once you set yourself apart unto Him you are aligned in every aspect of life in the ways of God.

Holiness is the ticket into God’s presence without it you won’t find Him not to talk of laying your requests before Him.

The truth is, you can be praying alright but you will just be sweating for nothing for those kind of prayers are unable to reach the ears of the father.

It is my prayer that you don’t just read this but practice to see results.

Blessings…

Prayer
1.Thank God for the gift of life and this word.

2.Ask for forgiveness of Sin.

3. Surrender your life to God and ask Him to help you leave a holy life because you cannot do it by yourself.

4. Thank Him for hearing you in Jesus name, Amen.

Beyond a Sunday morning Christian.

Happy Sunday lovelies 

Today I’m sharing a little note with you even as you prepare for church.

I think it is high time some of us go beyond being a Sunday morning Christian.

Well, I don’t think worship to our God is only limited to some few hours registered on the face of the clock, tops 5hours!

You see, it is not about going to the temple everyday to worship neither is it about staying in your room.

Point is, true worship is a lifestyle, you live it every single day whether you are happy or not and whether you feel like it or not you must live it!

Bibles says in John 4:23-24…

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

The father seeks for you to worship him but not because it is a Sunday but because you love Him. Your heart must be in it!

He wants a long term relationship, possibly marriage not a one night stand with you or should I rather say one morning stand?

It is time for a shift in our worship and I pray this message will cause that kind of effect in every reader in the name of Jesus Christ!!! Amen🙏

Can we pray?

Hello friends, I hope we are doing very well by the grace of God.

It’s a Saturday and we are still praying.

The year is still very young and we have to pray our way through it. 

James 5:16b

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Today I want you to join me in prayer as we pray for every youth in the world.

There are lots of things happening in the world and the devil is also finding so many attractive means to cover the truth and present evil in a different package.

Unfortunately the youth want to get rich quickly without hard work and so whatever opportunity that gets presented is accepted blindly when they ‘think’ there is a lot of goodies in it for them.

2 Corinthians 4:4

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

By this means the devil has diverted the course of many youth into darkness.

Join me today in prayer as we do some redirecting and depopulation in the Mighty name of Jesus.

You can still send me your prayer requests on situations you are battling with via papberryofficial@gmail.com and let’s do justice to those situations or you could just drop it in the comment box, remember prayer is key.

I want us to still pray for more oil for this journey so that we don’t get stranded half way through or fall into the traps of the evil one.

If there is any preparation to do, now is the time.

May God be our helper even in these times.
Blessings…

Today’s fragrance: God-fidence.

Today’s fragrance by Papberry

Topic: God-fidence

Scripture: 1 John 5:14

“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us”.

First of, confidence in God is what I call God-fidence.
Sometimes as believers, we get frustrated because our prayers seem not to have been heard by our Maker even though we really have been “praying”.

The truth is many of us haven’t received the things we prayed for because we’ve been praying for the wrong things.(James 4:3)

The will of God is our confidence for prayer, this means that if we know what God wills concerning our lives, it would be easier and less stressful because we will just go straight to the point without wandering at unnecessary places.

God gives nothing outside His purpose for our lives.
So get your God-fidence on by knowing what He wills for your life and pray for that!
Everything we will ever need has already been provided, we just have to pray it forth, work towards it and watch to see those manifest even physically.

So there you have it!
You need to know your purpose in order to receive from God else you will be frustrated. Jesus always prayed for the will of God to be done and he worked to accomplish it.

Say bye bye to frustration by putting your God-fidence for prayer on, thus using your will to do God’s will in prayer and in works.
Blessings…

Prayer

1. Thank God for your life and this message.

2. Ask for forgiveness of sins.

3. Ask God to reveal His will for your life to you through His word and other means if you don’t know.

4. Thank Him for hearing you in Jesus name, amen.

Today’s fragrance: you are a terrorist to Darkness.


Today’s fragrance by Papberry

Topic: You are a terrorist to darkness

Scripture: John 1:5

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it”.

If there is one thing my small head knows for sure, it is that whenever I walk into a dark room, all I have to do is turn on the light switch and everywhere will be lighted up.

This means that no matter how darkness has overshadowed a place, whenever light appears it vanishes like smoke in the thin air…

So I thought to myself, if mere artificial light can perform such wonders of actually chasing the ‘almighty’ darkness away, then why have we allowed so much darkness in us.

 when we can just turn on the switch inside of us to let the light in us shine to scare aware any form of darkness?

Today I’m here to remind you that, you are a terrorist to darkness because Ephesians 5:8 says for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.

You cannot be light and decide not to shine bright for everyone to see.

Too much darkness in your life prevents you from seeing things as they are, you don’t even see when you are going wrong because in darkness everything is black.

So today take your position as a terrorist to anxiety, brokenness, fear, frustrations,sexual immorality and other forms of darkness by turning on the light switch inside of you, you don’t have to worry because the holy Spirit has already powered you so just turn that switch on.

Blessings…

Prayer

1. Thank God for your life today and this message.

2. Ask for forgiveness of sin.

3. Ask God to take charge of your life and grant you more grace to function as the light of this world.

4. Finally thank God for hearing you in Jesus name, Amen.

Thoughtful Tuesday


Hello friends, how are you all doing today?

Well, it’s a Tuesday and I’m sharing a quote with you all.

“There is more power in one word from God, than all the powers of the enemy combined”.

One word from God is worthmore than unnumbered words from the enemy.

You know why?

Because the word is God is always true and sharper than any two edged sword!!

So tell me, who cares about what the enemy says when he has already been defeated!! He has no power to win so don’t focus or waste your energy on him.

Relax and have confidence in God for His words are sure.

Blessings…
